Kim Zimmer Returns to ‘One Life to Live’

Tuesday, August 17, 2010 at 2:34 PM ET by Scotty Gore

(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — In a suprising casting move, “One Life to Live” has managed to snag long-time “Guiding Light” star Kim Zimmer to reprise a role she hasn’t played in nearly three decades. 

Zimmer, who will step back into the role of Echo DiSavoy this fall, tells Soap Opera Digest that “I’m so excited.  I feel like its all come full circle.” The role is actually the actress’ second on “OLTL” (she played Bonnie Harmon in 1978).  She is perhaps best known for the role of Reva Shane on “Guiding Light,” which she played on and off from 1983-2009.  In addition to her roles on “GL” and “OLTL,” Zimmer has appeared on “The Doctors” and “Santa Barbara.”

For those unfamiliar with Zimmer’s last stint in Llanview, here’s a little recap: In 1983, Echo made her Llanview debut as an intriguing countess/photographer who put the moves on Clint Buchanan (then portrayed by Clint Ritchie).  However, Clint was unaware that the woman who was trying to seduce him was actually trying to lure him into a trap, since she blamed him for her mother’s death.  After taking him to a bridge, they got into a huge argument, after which Echo jumped to her “death.” The incident was witnessed by Dorian, who told the police that Clint was to blame.  Eventually, Viki located a very much alive Echo, who in turn confessed to her crime and promptly left town in October of that year, leaving Viki and Clint to repair their marriage. 

Expect Zimmer to interact with several familiar faces in Llanview, including Viki, Dorian, and Clint, among others in a “big” storyline.  It is rumored that she is back for only a short-term stint, however a spokesperson for the show had no comment. 

SON will continue to follow this story and bring you updates as conditions warrant.

‘OLTL’ Early September Casting Notes

(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — Fall begins to heat up in Llanview.

Kearran Giovanni returns as Dr. Vivian Wright on Thursday, September 2nd, when the doc and her colleague and former lover Greg each vie to become Llanview Hospital’s new Chief of Staff. Also look for Vivian to give Jessica some medical advice. The character was last seen in February when she accompanied her current boyfriend (and Greg’s brother) Shaun to watch Snoop Dogg’s performance at Capricorn.

Remember the audition script that was released last month for a Tahiti Cop? While the name of the actor cast in the bit part is unknown, expect the scenes to play out on screen starting on September 2nd as well. Watch for John to arrive in Tahiti after learning that Eli has been taken into custody on the tropic Pacific island, only to discover that the man under arrest is really Eli’s brother Ross.

Kassie DePaiva reveals that she recently taped a bunch of scenes, tweeting on Monday (August 16th) that she was “Coming off work week where I shot 14 episodes” before going on vacation. DePaiva also states that gets “Do a little fundraising 4 CHC & write beautiful song (hopefully 4 ‘OLTL’) with great songwriter Victoria Shaw.”

Jerry verDorn revealed last week in his fan club newsletter that “What a storyline we just started for ‘OLTL’/Clint. Family in-fighting, dirty play, a new romance and a new employee at Buchanan Enterprises. Plus some bombshell castings news.” While the casting part of his statement remains a mystery at this time, we can tell you that Clint wants to groom a certain member of the next generation of the Buchanan clan for a future at BE. His decision will be met with resistance from family and friends, however, who feel that the youngster is crossing over to the “dark side.” Also, Clint meets and takes a shine to a certain young lady who shares a connection to another member of his family.

And Matt Walton and his wife Alecia have become parents for a second time. On August 4th, they welcomed baby boy Greyson James into the world. Walton commented to Soap Opera Digest shortly before the birth that “It’s been wild. Everything’s been falling into place.” The Waltons also have another son, Ava, who is five.
